En­niskerry’s Aine plays in Big Ap­ple

Bray People - - Sport -

WHILE MOST OF us were tucked up in bed last Wed­nes­day night, En­niskerry’s Aine O’Gor­man was busy try­ing to help Ire­land de­feat the Olympic Cham­pi­ons United States in Giants Sta­dium, New York, a sta­dium with a spe­cial mean­ing for the Ir­ish.

Un­for­tu­nately the Girls in Green lost the friendly on a 1-0 score-line, with the Amer­i­cans net­ting the win­ner 18 min­utes from time.

Ire­land did come close to equal­iz­ing late on though through US born Michele O’Brien and O’Gor­man, when she lifted the ball over the ad­vanc­ing US goal­keeper Bri­ana Scurry only for de­fender Heather Mitts to scam­per back and clear off the line.
